Paper Abstract

1 , 2 A magneto optic (MO) rewritable disk drive has been put to practical use. The ISO standardization activity on a 130 mm rewritable disk is in its final stage and it will be standardized in 1989. An MO disk drive must he equipped with bias magnetic field generating functions in addition to the same characteristics as that of a write once read many (WORM) disk drive. The key factor for the broad acceptance of MO disk drives by users is that they conform to the ISO standard and that the drive size is of such a widely adopted size as that of a magnetic disk drive.
